On a lighter note, A report from Inquirer said recoveries for the overseas workers rose to 5,461 with 35 patients recovering from the deadly disease. Meanwhile, there had been more than 16.3 million coronavirus infections reported globally. Along with this, over 650,000 have succumbed to the respiratory illness.

However, in the Philippines, government officials such as Harry Roque continued to downplay the severity of the coronavirus. Despite having over 80,000 cases of COVID-19, Roque said that the public shouldn’t be worried. He explained that although the number of cases was high, the mortality rate of below 2% was still low with close to 2,000 deaths.

As a response to Roque’s statements, Vice President Leni Robredo said that the deaths of the Filipino are more than just statistics. Moreover, she emphasized that each Filipino who died had a story, a family, and a dream that was cut short because of the disease.
